Jessica P's Experiences

Experience description:   

I will have moments, where I start to feel like I'm watching a movie. Though, what I am doing is the movie. Almost an out of body experience. I am fully aware of what I am doing, however, I feel that I am watching myself do it. I feel like I can't remember what I was doing, who is around, or what I am supposed to do. Almost like my brain/memory is completely paralyzed. Even if I am doing things, such as cooking supper or driving a car. It's hard for me to recall what I was doing after the time of an 'occurrence', but I feel I was in a dream when I try and remember what I was doing. But when I am having an occurrence, I am fully aware that I am having one, but I feel like I'm in a movie. Some times I get scared during an occurrence. And after one, I almost feel depressed because I have had one. Like I missed some part of my life.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?            Uncertain      I have had occurrences after I was put on a heart medication (age11), before ever smoking marijuana, during the time that I smoked marijuana, and after I discontinued smoking marijuana (age 23-31). At 26, I was put on 2 additional water medications and 1 additional heart medication. At age 27 I was put on 2 asthmas inhalers. At age 30 I was put on a pain medication, and at age 32 I was put on an anxiety medication and a sleeping medication. Age 33 I was put on a nerve/seizure medication. I have had 'occurrences' for over the past 16+ years.
